JUPITER, Fla. -

One of the Miami Marlins' highly rated prospects was caught off guard Tuesday by a simple question about his manager.

When Local 10's Aiyana Cristal asked Jose Fernandez about Mike Redmond, Fernandez replied, "Who?"

"Mike Redmond, Coach Redmond?" repeated Cristal.

"Oh, okay. I don't know his name, I just met him. I just met him a bit ago," answered Fernandez.

Pitchers and catchers reported to spring training in Jupiter on Tuesday.

Redmond was hired after the Marlins fired Ozzie Guillen. Redmond played catcher for the Marlins when the team won the World Series in 2003.
